War ReportersStreaming Video - 2012
Competitive journalism makes reporters take greater and greater risks in order to satisfy the public's appetite for more dramatic reality. Why do they do it? And how? Michael Nicholson, ITN's most prolific war reporter, considers the fears and ethical dilemmas that confront the war correspondent daily; Martha Gellhorn, the first American woman war reporter, speaks of the need to "keep a record"; Robert Fisk recalls the discredit that the coverage of World War I brought to the journalism profession, and stresses the need to "stay in the front line in Beirut"; Tim Page, photographer extraordinaire and war junkie turned pacifist, speaks of the trauma of Vietnam; Nick Downie, cameraman/reporter, considers the difficulty of convincing news organizations of the need to analyze as well as film blood and death; and reporter/cameraman Neil David describes his work in Vietnam and Cambodia, which ultimately cost him his life.
